01-10-2001 23:51Here are some interesting links. The first is George Caffentzis's autonomist Marxist speculation on the causes of the attacks in the USA.
The next two are articles on how army mutinies and working class uprisings ended both the Gulf and the Kosovo wars. The final articles are attempts to understand why the opposition to those wars was so much less impressive in the UK.

01-10-2001 14:34Reply to my question as to why the WTO is to be meeting in Qatar. Don't be fooled by this nonsense - the US and Britain want to force through a new round of free trade talks (to head off recession amongst other things, and to privatise, pollute more etc etc). The only places they can do this is where demonstrations are both prohibited and impossible to get to. Later this year people will be standing up against the WTO by blockading the worlds stock exchanges and targetting Qatar based companies and govt. offices. There is some info on the website below, and more on many others.
